What!??? No Tea Party folks gonna jump on this Taxed Enough Already Bandwagon????

Or are they very selective on which TAXES they don't like??

That's how you can tell a phony. And a phony organization. But then they believe they are a grass roots organization when they are nothing but shoddy astro-turf.

In post #2, a TEE Farty member states the obvious ---
Not only are they blind to what they are 'fighting for'-- they are also deaf.

Blind, Deaf, and DUMB!

Obvious? It makes no sense to me. The libs are the sheeples. The only thing that raising the butt tax will do is encourage a black market. if you want to increase tax revenue you lower taxes dumby!

Have at it. Cheap thrills for me and good exercise in typing skills if nothing else. Heck, don't even have to put on shoes.

If from KY, enjoy the next Mint Juliup -- great state you got there.

Believe it or not I have lived here all my life and never tasted a Mint Julep. I have to give one a try sometime.

Though I have never been to Churchill Downs for the Derby, a Julep, well made, is a fine beverage.

Nice talkin with a nice person south of the line.

Good luck, stay strong, and as the song says, "Kentucky, you are the dearest land outside of heaven to me....Kentucky, that is where God will look for me."

Wheeewu! Shacked hands there, then somehow, well, things come and go. Yeah, spent some time wandering in your blue grass and admired some fine horse farms. Maybe it was just the bourbon!

It's a little like that up here in New England...bigger rolling hills and stony ground to plow, but there's nothing like southern hospitality!

Drop by when you get a chance.

In the mean time live well and happy.
